Grand Theft Auto Online will get the classic gangster treatment with a free 'Valentine's Day Massacre' update dropping this week.

Arriving Friday, 14 February, the update introduces 10 new jobs, a tommy gun, a slew of new clothing and a classic 1920s limousine (armoured of course).

Among the new jobs are additional deathmatches, parachute jumps and land, sea and cycle races.

Players will be able to keep anything they purchase forever, but each new item will only be available for a limited, unspecified, period of time.

A Rockstar Games press release reads:

Nothing says "I love you" quite like the warm wooden grip and cold steel barrel of a Gusenberg Sweeper machine gun. Get it from any Ammu-Nation location in GTA Online (in Story Mode, the Sweeper is automatically deposited into each character's weapon inventory with two full clips and additional ammo can be purchased at Ammu-Nation).

Paint the town red in the classically-inspired Albany Roosevelt. This armored 1920s limousine is perfect for gangsters and their molls. To properly run amok with the new Roosevelt, get in the driver's seat and let your friends or Crewmates hang off the side, firing and taking out your rivals as you pass them by. The Roosevelt can be accessed from any garage property in Story Mode and is available in GTA Online from the in-game website.

Dress to the nines in a host of new double breasted suits and 1920s flapper dresses, or bare it all in sexy undergarments while going incognito with a selection of new masquerade masks. There are also new novelty t-shirts, hats and more available in stores throughout Los Santos, plus a new Flapper Bob hairstyle exclusively for the ladies.

The Valentine's Day Massacre also includes 10 new Jobs scattered like the remnants of a broken heart throughout the world of GTA Online, including Deathmatches, a new Parachute Jump and new land, sea and cycling Races."

Rockstar's Valentine's Day Massacre update is further proof that the studio is committed to keeping Grand Theft Auto V's online aspect fresh for players with new content. It is also a sign that future timed content and special events are likely in the future.

Last month an industry analyst furthered reports that the hit crime epic is set to come to PC and next gen consoles in the coming months, with a Czech retailer recently leaking that it may arrive in June.
